There are two categories of Chemistry Scholarships: (1) Those administered through the Financial Aid Office and (2) those administered through the Chemistry Department.
Administered by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships
All Chemistry Majors should apply for general University of Nevada, Reno scholarships. There are some Chemistry-specific scholarships that can only be awarded to students who have applied through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. (The Chemistry Department can only nominate you for these awards if you have an application on file with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.) General Scholarship Applications must be made online.
For continuing students, the financial aid application typically becomes available in mid-October with typically a February 1 deadline for the upcoming academic year. You should carefully read the Application Instructions and complete the application as directed in the continuing students section of the UNR scholarships webpage.
Most Chemistry-specific scholarships are awarded through the Chemistry Department and you should apply directly to the department for these awards. These awards are based primarily on merit and achievement in Chemistry. Information about these awards is available from the Chemistry Department Office (CB 213, 775-784-6041). In general, departmental scholarship applications are due in the early spring (late February or early March) of each year.
For 2012-2013 academic year scholarships, the application due date is Tuesday, March 27, 2012. Application forms can be downloaded here and can also be obtained from the Chemistry Office, CB 213.
